Overview

Only in the past twenty years have debates surrounding modernism and postmodernism begun to have an impact on economics. This new way of thinking rejects claims that science and mathematics provide the only models for the structure of economic knowledge.

This ground-breaking volume brings together the essays of top theorists including Arjo Klamer, Deirdre McCloskey, Julie Nelson, Shaun Hargreaves-Heap and Philip Mirowski on a diverse range of topics such as gender, postcolonial theory and rationality as well as postmodernism.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Economists and philosophers from North America, Britain, and the Netherlands argue that unearthing and engaging the undecidables and aporia of economic discourse is part of a broader realization of a new phase of self-conscious thought, and perhaps a new phase of society and history known as the postmodern.
